A New 2015-16 UNICEF Team!!

 

 Our new UNICEF team has 1 new member, Willow.  

Mrs. Ashton guides us when we need guidance but we do as much of the planning and promoting of the Convention on the rights of the child ourselves.

 

 

UNICEF’s Day for Change on Friday 5th

We shall be celebrating UNICEF’s Day for Change on Friday 5th February and we have many activities to get involved in as we raise money for children living in dangerous situations.

This year, our focus article from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is: Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and mental needs.

Non uniform day: We are thinking particularly about the children in Syria and so encourage you to wear the colours of the Syrian flag rather than school uniform. A fee for the privilege of non-uniform will be approximately £1. We challenge you to bring this in small change. Delve down the sides of your sofas and risk a search under your bed. Bring whatever change you find and we shall make a coin trail around school. I wonder how long will our trail be?

Art competition:The theme this year is money. This could be as straightforward as illustrating coins or more complex such as reflecting poverty versus wealth. There will be prizes for FSU, KS1 and KS2. Have a go and see your work displayed in the main corridor!

'Glusburn Bake-Off':This is a cake decorating competition for ALL staff at the school. The competition is usually fierce and we welcome Mrs. Birch back as chief judge! The theme will again be money and raffle tickets will be sold at 20p for the winning cake.

Cake Sale on Friday 5th February: This will be the sale of all other cake entries cut in slices at 20p each. Children, please remember to hold onto 20p when you bring your money in a week on Friday.

Quiz Sheets: Finally, UNICEF Team members have written quizzes, one for each key stage. We shall sell these at 20p each and

winners will have the opportunity to participate in ‘Role for the Morning’, standing in as Headteacher, General Teaching Assistant, School Secretary, Mid day supervisor, and Class Teaching Assistant.

We wish you a very happy ‘Day for Change 2016’ and look forward to supporting UNICEF and its work in emergency situations around the world.
